Love all three, Poilu, excellent color work! The 3rd one would be better if you
uploaded it with the new 'scratch and sniff" software. Wink

Thanks Hood, very interesting roll by you too, many good pictures, just like with Ian I have to say
that I would have chosen three different pictures from your roll.

I think it was a good idea to request to post a whole roll then a selection. It is interesting to see what people chooses and what not.

Hood, Paul, please indicate the location.


Thanks Orio.

I updated my post to include location too. Very Happy

Some nice work there!

Here are my three. We had just fabulous weather in Seattle on Saturday, so I shot Fujifilm 200 on a Nikon FE at South Lake Union Park and the Wooden Boat Center. These three images were shot using a Nikkor 50-135mm; some images in the flickr set were shot with a Nikkor 20mm. I believe all of the images were taken at f8. The processing and scan were by Kenmore Camera. No post-processing, except I resized the vertical image.

Gaeger, great rolls, thanks! and a wow scanning really, I'm envious.

I have uploaded my roll at Flickr:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/26917388@N00/sets/72157629651794400/

I'm very angry about having screwed the exposure of the most important photos, 20 to 23, because I did use manual
exposure previously then I forgot to set exposure mode to Aperture Priority, so I took those snaps with wrong exposure.
I had to boost exposure when scanning, but that produced awful noise.
Anyway here's my three takes:

May 5th, 2012, morning: 29th Junior Tennis Championship of Salsomaggiore:




May 5th, 2012, afternoon: Belinda Bencic a few seconds before starting to play her winning semifinal of 29th Junior Tennis Championship of Salsomaggiore:




May 5th, 2012, evening: children playing near the Roman ruins in Fidenza:




My final comment: I really hate scanning film. And I hate having to do it with a scanner that does not resolve the shadows well
and that introduces chromatic aberrations in the images. Mad

Still looks like a fine set to me Orio!
I love the perspective in #32 & #33!! Very Happy

nice series from everyone
it is indeed shocking to see chromatic aberrations in b&w Shocked
maybe scanner have a b&w mode
Ian & fish have great b&w scanning, Xpres may miss some dynamics but no CA!

It has, but it would be very stupid to scan in grayscale mode at 8 bit resolution
when I can scan in RGB mode at 42 bit depth and then desaturate
the problem is that my 4490 scanner introduces lateral CA
the fact that reportedly even bigger models like V700 create lateral CA is only a partial consolation
if I'm going to get serious at B&W film I need a dedicated film scanner

#32 was shot from the hip, hence the tilt Laughing

I scan with my epson 3900 in Grayscale, 16bit.

I came to the same conclusion, I need a dedicated film scanner such as a Coolscan or a Dimage. Those are not cheap though Sad

I heard good things about the Reflecta scanners, there are some of the best models that are reasonably priced from 300 to 500 Euros
I need to further explore about them.

Please share the info when you discover it, I do feel there is more detail and quality to be had from 35mm that i can get with my scanner.

Maybe I'll find an old coolscan cheap one day...

Good luck with that. Ian... Smile Very Happy For me, it would have to be the Plustek 7600i.

Orio, your 'wrong' exposures look like everyday business to me [nailed it! lol].

I really like the 1st one.

Bill, check the Reflecta ProScan 7200 before you decide for the Plustek. It delivers the same resolution as the Plustek 7600i,
but scans faster and creates much smaller file size. The comparison is made there:

Orio, familiar with Reflekta, think it goes by Pacific Imaging over here, need to check again.
They are about the same price if I remember. Thanks for the link!

Just looking at that link, the filmholders alone are a better deal.


PostPosted: Wed May 09, 2012 9:30 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Well, I thought this was it, but NOT. No filmholder.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/487000-REG/Pacific_Image_7250PRO3_PrimeFilm_7250Pro3_Film_Scanner.html

I'll keep looking.


PostPosted: Wed May 09, 2012 9:36 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Bill, that model does not use film holders. It's the bigger model, but the actual measured resolution is not much larger (3800 vs. 3200), it scans slower,
and has a smaller dynamic range (3,2 vs. 3,8 of the Proscan 7200).
The ProScan 7200 has no motor, which for some may look like a minus, but for me (who don't have to scan hundreds or thousands) is a plus,
because motors do break, while hand feeding never breaks, well, at least not if you don't break your hand first Laughing

It doesn't really bother me so much. If anything it adds to the photos.
I must admit I corrected the horizon in one of my images just 'cause I knew someone would say something.
I left others that were close-ish, I still got a comment about my horizons however, that comment is gone now they must have decided to remove it.
All good, to me an interesting image is an interesting image, regardless of whether the photographer was able to correct for unsteady footing etc.

Oh I want the one with the filmholder, but it looks like Amazon UK is the only place I can get it, at least so far in my search.
